Great, thanks for pinging her!
Here is an email just recieved from Amy Kremer, Chairman of the Tea Party Express:
Over the past several months, U.S. Senator Dick Lugar (R-Indiana) has time and again criticized the tea party movement.
More than 70 tea party leaders even sat down with Lugar to get him to understand what this movement is about, and the kind of principled leadership we expect from our representatives.
Today Dick Lugar went even further telling the media that tea party activists need to "get real" simply because they expressed their opposition to the new START treaty that Lugar voted for.
Enough is enough - Dick Lugar voted for the bailouts. He then voted against the bill that would have refunded the unused TARP bailout funds back to taxpayers. He voted for the big government SCHIP program. He criticized those who were opposed to earmarks. He supports amnesty. He was given the grade of "F " by Gun Owners of America.
As we here at the Tea Party Express prepare to unveil our Target List for the 2012 elections, it is clear that someone like this needs to go - Dick Lugar has become the epitome of what is wrong in Washington, D.C.
If you agree, then we need your help.
We need to build a massive warchest to win more campaigns for constitutional conservatives, and defeat people like Dick Lugar.
I can't get the stream on the TPX site, but it is steaming good on the TeaPartyHD site.
Muchele Bachman being welcomed!
((( TPX Ping )))
Michele Bachman speaking now
“we heard what the american people are saying the last two years and they are the calvery that came in and did the rescute work in the last election and we are so grateful”
“We saw such a change in this country and never thought she would would live to see the day when the feg gov would own the latgest banks, insurance co, and full ownership of fannie and freddie”
She is great in explaning just what is going on.
I have two questions. They are not easy to answer, they are political super hot-potatoes.
(1) Should a person committed to the Liberty principles of the Tea Party support ethanol subsidies, even if being against them means a difficult time in Iowa?
(2) Should a person, in an official position of Public Trust, and sworn to uphold the Constitution ignore the demonstrably legitimate claims that Barack Hussein Obama does not meet the Constitutional requirement to hold that Office even if he is a citizen by birth, because under the understanding of the term of art known to the Framers of the Constitution Obama is not a "natural born" citizen, since his Dad was never a US citizen?
Thank all of you!

Sen. Lee: “If they try, we will shut them down!”
Tea Party bump.
I was good to see Richmond’s Jamie Radtke at the townhall and be recognized by Amy Kremer as the conservative challenger to James Webb.
Thanks very much .. ;)
does anyone know where Paul Ryan stands with the TEA party?
Is he for or against or just not committing to us?
It's late and I need to get to bed. I would really appreciate it if someone could quickly fill me in on what was said about this issue ( if anything).
I heard nothing mentioned regarding that.
